    This cherry vanilla cake (image above) looks absolutely delicious. It’s getting me in the mood for some Valentine’s Day baking! I’ll try to squeeze in time to make some huge soft sugar cookies this weekend since they are absolutely the most delicious cookie to me. Up to anything fun? Working on any Valentine’s Day crafts or plans? A sneak peek of what’s coming for next week: A gigantic Valentine’s Day giveaway, a Levis promo video about my life as a blogger that I’ve been waiting to share with you for forever, Valentine’s Day dessert ideas, and more.

    Below are a few links and reminders. Until Monday, friends!

    The Blogging 101 video class last night was a blast! Register here for the Blogging 101 on March 8th date and register here for the Getting Started with Advertising class next week on 2/15.

      Such great links, my favorite is the felted elbow patches. I can attest that needle felting is hugely therapeutic and very easy, I felted a miniature teddy for my daughter at Christmas.
      Any way you could share your soft sugar cookie recipe–I’ve been looking for a good one everywhere!

      That cake looks incredible! And I’m kind of dying over the s’mores mug cake.

      One of my earliest childhood memories is being forced to eat beets and spitting them up into my glass of milk. Natural pink milk.

        HA! Sorry to bring back such an pleasant memory. Did it look pretty at least?
